Default AVO TMIC to TB Hose

For those with this hose...What is your position of the hose on your car. I had a bitch of a time getting it on with the stock TMIC and now it looks as if there is a little gap on the IC side which I believe could be causing a whistle noise in 3rd-5th under high boost. I've played with it a bunch and it just seems as if it does not fit perfectly but I know people have had it fit. Which way is the "AVO" on those hose facing for you guys????

I had one of these and for the life of me I could not get it to ever set right. Went back to stock one and been running fine since.

From what I have read, the AVO hose is shorter than stock and actually makes the install problems worse. I think the best option is the stock hose with the rubber end "caps" removed.

Proper install for the 08+ TMIC is to put the TMIC into the coupler just far enough so it won't slip off, and then clamp that down tightly. Then muscle it over onto the turbo flange. Be careful not to cross thread the holes in the turbo. Once you get these bolts started, then start the bolt for the bracket. Finally, tighten all the bolts down.

If you try to do the coupler last, it just won't work. The fitment is very tight on the 08+ WRX style TMIC (even with the stock TMIC) and worse with aftermarket ones.

I have the AVO TB hose and I found it to be longer than the stock hose and fit just fine on my 2010 WRX. Not sure why you guys are having issues.

How come there are no pictures of the AVO side by side with the stock hose? I have heard that the AVO is 2" longer, slightly longer, and also shorter than stock. Lol. Obviously people are buying the wrong hose or simply don't know how to measure.

I was about to ask what the hell the deal really is with this AVO hose, since paying more attention lately I've heard nothing but contradiction!

Post a picture of the AVO hose and the Oem side by side. I am curious to see how they stack up next to each other.

I think that will only make the same problem on the other end. Anndd I am reluctant to take the TMIC off again. What a PITA to realign the hose so the TMIC will bolt back on everywhere. I really had to muscle it over to the turbo for it to bolt on. But I am going to have to either way sooo.

With the stock hose you can fully seat it onto the TB and it still reaches. You just have to clamp down the coupler on the TMIC before you bolt the other side of the TMIC to the turbo.

I can take a Pic if needed... The AVO portion is facing the driver's side and closest to firewall. I came up with this based off the way I took off oem and compared the two. May not be 100% but it worked in my particular setup... I will take a pic and upload later if I remember when I go outside.

If you really want either hose to stick on and stay put, spray hairspray inside the ends of the hose and use t-bolt clamps to really hold it on. As previously stated, those rubber ends are pointless and are better off being in the trash. I had an AVO hose at one point and had to trim it slightly so that I could fit it on the stock TMIC. It was definitely longer than stock, but I guess some people got the knock-off version from eBay and it was too small

I had two the AVO and the Tomioka. The AVo TMIC fit perfectly, not so much with the hose, the Tomiaka is actually better.
